Aggreko Drives Benefits Engagement and Reduces Employee Healthcare Costs With Castlight Health

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) -  Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT), a leading health benefits platform provider, today announced that Aggreko, the global leader in providing rental power and temperature control solutions, is powering informed healthcare decision-making with Castlight's health benefits platform. With Castlight, Aggreko engages its employees to make better healthcare decisions and enables benefit leaders to more effectively communicate and measure their programs.

Aggreko serves customers in almost every industry worldwide, providing temporary power generation, temperature control, and oil-free air solutions. As Aggreko transitioned to a full-replacement consumer-directed health plan (CDHP), the company turned to Castlight in order to provide employees with the information, education, and decision-support products to effectively shop for healthcare.

With Castlight's health benefits platform, Aggreko provides US based employees with an intuitive way to understand their benefits, learn about a wide variety of health and wellness options, and become engaged healthcare shoppers. When Castlight was introduced to Aggreko employees in 2014, the company set a registration goal of 40%. This target was surpassed within one week of the launch, and currently 67% of Aggreko's employees are registered on the platform today.

Employees who utilized the Castlight platform saw 53% savings on advanced imaging costs by searching for the service before an appointment, compared to those who didn't. Additionally, employees who searched for lab services on Castlight realized 38% savings compared to non-searchers. Moreover, Aggreko saw decreased overutilization of ER visits by employees across the country. 

"Employees can't make informed healthcare decisions if they aren't able to access the cost and quality of healthcare," said Luke Prettol, North American human capital manager at Aggreko. "Castlight's intuitive and simple platform guides our employees to the right care at the right time and allows them to not only quickly review and choose providers, but also to easily learn about a condition or illness or verify the status of their benefits."

Castlight's seamless, centralized platform delivers an integrated employee experience that enables Aggreko to offer an array of third-party programs such as Doctor on Demand video consults, Grand Rounds second opinions, and SurgeryPlus for referrals to surgical centers of excellence, among others. Castlight can be accessed from anywhere at any time using a computer, tablet, or mobile phone.

"We are honored to have Aggreko as part of the Castlight family of customers. As a company, we are dedicated to equipping people with the tools and information they need to become active and engaged healthcare consumers," said Giovanni Colella, MD, co-founder and CEO at Castlight Health. "We are thrilled to see Aggreko exceed its engagement goals and lower healthcare costs for its employees."
